criticism for privacy concerns.ñ one place it's proving useful is in an ambulance. medical express ambulance service in chicago is doing trial runs with google glass for emergency$0 responders. paramedics wear the glass and can transmit video straight to a doctor. >> it saves time. it can help diagnose things faster, and in our business, minutes can be brain cells, can be heart cells. time is everything. >> pretty amazing. the system is set up to transmit only video but the ambulance company says it's planning to enable monitored transmissions, so paramedics can actually see the patient's heart rate monitor right before their eyes. if you're confused, google has since canceled the glass but maybe, scott mcgrew, they can make the ambulance. >> they can make the ambulance. apple is looking on vehicles calling it the appulance. there's no way apple will build a car. to some news reporters putting a date on it.
5:13 am
bloomberg says 2020, which sounds far away with ybut that' five years. if apple makes a car at all you know it's going to be different, not just the car but the whole idea of a car, and there are plenty of problems with changing even minor aspects of the car business. take for instance tesla's idea of selling the product it makes, in many states it's illegal for car manufacturers to manufacture cars. it has to be done through dealers. le novo is apologizing for loading software onto some of its laptops that may be insecure. it's called superphish, bloatware, the junk that pc makers preload on computers. it's a shopping program made in palo alto but security experts say it's poorly made and could expose your computer's passwords. let's turn to a woman whose computer password is nasdaq5000. landon dowdy live at cnbc world

5:16 am
if you can't tell the department people warning about, queen elsa from disney's "frozen." the department wants people to be aware of cold temperatures, they're dangerous. they're trying any way they can to have fun. >> i'm trying any way i can to escape "frozen." where do i need to go to get away from "frozen"? it's impossible. >> you still haven't seen it. it's something you're proud of. >> i'm keeping the streak going, strong, strong. >> i feel bad for them over there but they are going to get warmer weather as we get into the weekend. for us, same deal and then some rain as of next week, looking really good toward the end of the week as well, into the first week of march but hey, as of today, we are officially one month away from the start of spring. temperatures are in the 50s. i want to take you through your day part forecast for the bay area, maybe you can get outdoors, by lunch time knock off a little bit early. look at our temperatures at noon. 63 degrees in zpran, at lunch time today, more sunshine for you out there as well.

"today in the bay's" bob redell live at o.co sol key yum. are the raiders threats to leave starting to look serious? >> reporter: well they certainly have some leverage. good morning to you, laura.
5:31 am
officially the oakland raiders are still trying to get obviously out of o.co and find a new venue to keep them here in the east bay so they don't have to move back down to the southern california area like they did in the early 1980s. if they can't work out a deal with local government in the east bay, which they have been trying to do for years, then they possibly have this option. yesterday the raiders and the san diego chargers announced they would build and share a $1.7 billion stadium to be built in the city of carson. that's about 15 miles south of downtown los angeles. one reason the move is so enticing? the teams wouldn't have to rely on public funding. the city of carson says it would be privately financed through the sale of luxury tax and the income from sale of luxury suites and the income from luxury tax. >> raiders owner mark davis remains committed to staying in oakland long-term, this latest stadium proposal with the san diego chargers is the most
5:32 am
serious leverage pull yet and i do believe if nothing happens in oakland over the course of the next season, the rauders could bolt for los angeles. >> it would be a great blow to the city of oakland and certainly would set us back. but i certainly don't blame the raiders for exploring their options, given the difficulties. >> reporter: the nfl has alerted both teams it ultimately has the final say over whether or not they are allowed to move. an owners committee is reviewing the option including not only this proposed stadium in carson but two other possibilities in and around the los angeles area. coming up, we will tell you what oakland mayor libby schaff has to say and what this means for fans. reporting outside o.co, bob redell, "today in the bay." >> the chargers fans not too eager for the proposal either. that story in about 15 minutes.
5:33 am
doctors admitted giants manager bruce bocy yesterday after complaining of chest pain. the doctors inserted two stents into his heart. last night we talked with insider alex pavlovic when bochy will be back. >> reporter: with this procedure a week tops returning to work. it sounds like it will be a few days. i've heard it could be pretty quickly here. the guy obviously likes to work and be at the ball park. it will be hard to keep him away. >> the giants staff says bochy is resting comfortably and he will be released later today. >> petaluma police say a 22-year-old woman came to the station on wednesday. she told officers someone kidnapped her at gunpoint in roseland three weeks ago.
5:34 am
she claimed her attackers beat her and sexually assaulted her at a home on stony point road. she escaped and made it all the way to the petaluma police station. a man who stabbed a co-worker during an argument at work now on the loose this morning. two men work at a body shop in cupertino. investigators say the two were arguing about something work related when the suspect pulled out a knife and stabbed the man. the victim should be okay. deputies say they know who the suspect is, but they don't know where he is. the country's top labor leader says the west coast slowdown must end today. secretary of labor thomas perez gave the deadline to the dockers union and the side hiring them. billions of dollars of cargo is just sitting on ships anchored outside of 29 ports. >> see if his calls for resolution there actually resonate. "today in the bay's" stephanie chuang joins us live from san francisco this morning,
5:35 am
something people have to get used to, stephanie, a little extra finger exercise on this phone. good morning. >> reporter: that's right, good morning to you both, sam and laura. 415 has been around since 1947 so for the folks who lived here in san francisco, most of marin county and some of san mateo county, we were talking about a pretty big change in terms of dialing habits. there is an entire group dedicated to area codes called the north american plan administration filed for a new area code may 2013 because it estimated that 415 would be complete lay signed by the third quarter of 2015. so starting tomorrow morning at 12:01, after midnight you have to dial 1-415, and the seven-digit number or get a recording that says your call cannot be completed and you have to hang up and dial again. current number and area code won't change, nor the price of a call coverage area and this overlay impacts san francisco county, most of marin county, mill valley, novato and san
5:36 am
rafael. people will get these new numbers starting march 21st, that's the area code 628. 415 is nearing 70 years. in 1959 the state treated 707 for the north, 408 for the south bay. in 1991, east bay got 510 and '97 the we nips laswitched to 650 and a year later 925 and 831 were created. even those numbers seem to be running out because of the popularity of cell phones so coming up in our next report in about half an hour we'll have more on that when more area codes may be created here in the bay area. live for now in san francisco, stephanie chuang, "today in the bay." >> those are a lot of numbers there, steph. >> it's fair to say this is a bonanza of area codes coming out of the woodwork. thank you very much. 5:36 right now. we're going to stick with the 408. there's some pride to be had there, right, christina. everyone talks about the 415. what's wrong with the 408? >> nothing wrong with it at all.
